Under a deal to curb migration, Italy is helping to train and equip an enemy in a long-running dispute

In Antico Borgo Marinaro, an elegant restaurant in Mazara del Vallo, on the west coast of Sicily, a dish of uncooked red prawns with melon, chili pepper and pomegranate costs €12. Fisherman fear these same red prawns could cost them their lives.

Since the mid-90s when Libya began protecting its fishing waters from foreign vessels with the use of force, a little-known conflict has been rumbling in the 180 miles of sea that separates Libya from Italy, which are also the fishing grounds for one of the world’s most prized crustaceans.

Turkey's Continued Care For ISIS Will End Badly


"Eight and a half years ago when the #war on #Syria began, #Turkey played the most important role. Weapons were smuggled from #Libya through Turkey to be delivered to ' #Syrian #rebels'. Over the years tens of thousands of foreign #Jihadis traveled through Turkey to join the various groups fighting against the Syrian government. After the Islamic State came into existence even more followed.

Italy is to renew its deal with the UN-backed government in Libya under which the Libyan coastguard stops migrant boats at sea and sends their passengers back to the north African country, where aid agencies say they face torture and abuse.

The foreign minister, Luigi Di Maio, told the lower house of parliament it would be “unwise for Italy to break off its agreement with Libya on handling asylum seekers and combating human trafficking”.
